I want to compliment you on this beautiful capture of the Abyssinian Roller with its delicate, but striking features, especially the round black polka dot eye and the gorgeous tailpiece. The catch-light caught in its eye, and the soft colours in its feathers is really special. Best regards.

Hi Peter. This is a unusual looking bird with its large head and fairly small body. But some time it can just bethe way they are hold the branch. What ever its a very colourful little bird. Which your picture shows so well. I like the pose showing the long tail. Well taken and TFS .

A fine shot of one of my favourite species of birds!
Though a little soft you did right in not trying to sharpen it more. The POV, composotion on the diagonal branch, Colours and Bg are great.
Thanks and best regards,

een mooie foto met een prachtig gekleurde vogel die ik nog niet in het echt gezien heb.
Jammer van dat takje achter zijn hoofd.
Kan je dat niet wegclonen?
Dan is ie helemaal af, nu blijft het een heel klein -puntje.
Prachtige zachte kleuren.

During your trip to Africa you have seen very colorful birds and this Abyssinian Roller is a good example for it. Must be very impressive to see it. You made a pleasant composition with the branch used as diagonal and the very subtle-colored background.
Thanks also for the interesting note.
